I took another look at yesterday's photo and thought a tighter crop and monochrome might work.

That's an absolutely splendid photograph, Roger.

Just like one of Dr Allen's!

Thank you very much.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

I may be the voice of dissent as I prefer the colour version as it brings back great summer day memories of sitting in lineside fields with a duffel bag containing Tizer, cheese & pickle sandwiches and the inevitable Lyons fruit pie while keeping an eye on the signals to see if anything was ‘pegged’. Then the excitement of “What d’you reckon it’ll be?’ before the loco hove into sight and there were either “Oohs” of pleasure or raspberries if it was a frequent visitor we all had in our books. Once the train had clanked past and faded into the distance the fields settled down again to the buzz of insects.
Luckily my memories are still in colour :)

I read somewhere, years ago, that people don't dream in color. I can say unequivocally that isn't true - for me. Apparently, Mick dreams in color, also.

I wish I was getting enough sleep at present to get to the dreaming stage! But a quick Google search suggests that a small minority of people do dream in black and white but most of us enjoy the full colour experience.

Bittern was seen passing through Wrenton this afternoon. I had time for some photos, but only this one 'processed' so far.

Yet another awesome pic, Roger.  :thumbsup:

As for Mick dreaming in colour, I didn't think anything was in colour where he's from  :D

Apologies in advance to NewportNobby's nearby members. Just joking  ;)

Anyway, we had some pretty colourless days in the NE.

Love that A4 shot, Roger.  :thumbsup:

Great photos Roger,

I love the black and white pictures. I changed some of mine to monochrome / sepia tone, some were OK, some looked wrong, and it was only the shots with locos in that looked good to me. Somehow the scenic shots didn't look quite as good

All bet wishes
Kevin
